After a little research and a trip to the grocery store, sprucing up an old favorite was the choice – and this bacon and corn chowder soup was born.

Step 1: Add ingredients to the slow cooker
Take all ingredients, except for the heavy cream, butter, and garnish, and throw in the slow cooker. The chicken broth should be enough to cover all of the other ingredients. If not, add a little more until everything is submerged.
*NOTE: Be sure to set aside a few bacon crumbles if you want to use some as garnish.
Step 2: Slow cook soup for 8 hours, add ingredients, and blend
Set it, and FORGET IT! Cook on low for 8 hours. Go ahead, get some sleep! When it’s done, take half of the soup mixture and pulse in a blender.
Put the blended soup back into the slow cooker, add the butter and heavy cream, and mix thoroughly. Cook on the low setting for 1 more hour. That’s it!
Step 3: Spoon chowder into bowls, garnish and serve
Ladle into each bowl, then top with bacon crumbles and green onions. You can serve with biscuits or any kind of bread you like. This chowder was so warm, so filling, my whole family loved it. I just love simple crockpot recipes like these!
